Summary:
Joe Harper is in a rut. His girlfriend just left him and he hasn't had an acting job in over a year. In a last-ditch effort to build his self-esteem and renew his faith in his chosen profession, Joe spends the last of his savings (plus a loan from his agent) to direct a Christmas production of Hamlet in the sleepy English village of Hope. Joe enlists six eccentric characters who each have problems of their own. Joe and his eclectic band of
thespians tackle both the Bard's greatest play and their own inadequacies and fears, with surprising and often hilarious results.
